Konerko Hits Slam, White Sox Foil Boston
CHICAGO (AP) -- Paul Konerko hit a grand slam that wrecked Jon Lester's bid for his 20th win, and the Chicago White Sox beat the Boston Red Sox 8-2 Thursday night in a game delayed because of a power failure.

The game was held up for 21 minutes in the sixth inning when most of the stadium lights went out. A power outage in the area was the cause.

Konerko connected for his 39th homer of the season and the ninth grand slam of his career. The fourth-inning shot off Lester made it 6-2.

Lester (19-9) made his final start of the season.
